For those that don't believe black magic plays a part in football, an official with the Super Eagles has informed how the Eagles of Mali players broke two eggs on the Moses Mabhida Stadium turf as they came for the warm-up section in Wednesday's Semi-Final clash.

The official, who begged Sporting Life that his name should not be revealed, said: "I have never seen such a thing in my life though I have heard time without number that 'juju' can play a role in African football.

"As we set the pitch for the Eagles stars to begin the light warm-up section before the semi-final game, there I spotted two Malian players stoning to the ground eggs as they prepared for their own section.

"Another official who also witnessed the incident, called me and gave me a bottle of Anointing Water (from T.B. Joshua) to sprinkle to the spot. That I did. I was not surprised when the Malians made the Eagles look ordinary in the opening 15 minutes of the game.

"My joy is, God showed He is above every evil when, after the Mali Eagles dominance, we countered and scored our opening goal.

"We then went on to score four goals before they got a consolation."
